Anti-missile exercise tests electronics of Arrow system

Security forces recently successfully tested the 'Arrow' anti-missile defense system. While the experiment, which tested the electronics systems of the missile, wasn't as complex as the test that was carried out a month and a half ago, security forces said that it is an important step in the development of the system.

In the previous test, the Arrow system succeeded in intercepting a test target that simulated the warhead of a long-range Iranian surface-to-surface Shihab-3 missile.

Air Defense Commander Brigadier General Danny Milo said after the most recent test "we have taken another technological jump that is based on the most realistic and relevant threats we can simulate. This is not a theoretical test."
